Mrs. Lyons' Class Week 9

Math, Science, Social Studies

October 12th - 16th

This week is the last week in our nine weeks so we will be wrapping up loose ends.

We have informal assessments for our report card check lists that are very time consuming, so I will be planning skill building activities for the students while I complete these one-on-one individual student assessments.

In math we will be working on several addition strategies.

In Science, we will finish the last few topics in our nonfiction study on Bats and will begin a nonfiction study on Spiders.

In Social Studies, we will be working in our Maps, Graphs, and Globes workbook.
